Unlock PerformanceFor those that develop HPC applications, there are usually two main areas that must be considered. The first is the translation of the algorithm, whether simulation based, physics based or pure research into the code that a modern computer system can run. A second challenge is how to move from the implementation of an algorithm to the performance that takes advantage of modern CPUs and accelerators. The development of HPC applications requires the understanding of the basic science as well as the use of compiler tools to generate efficient machine code that the Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon Phi processors can execute.

A well developed compiler suite can take both legacy high level code or newly developed high level code and produce assembly or machine code that runs efficiently on that target architecture. Whether developing in Fortran, C, C++, Python, Java, C# or Google Go, the underlying technology must be advanced enough to understand the hardware capabilities. In addition, the operating system, whether Windows, Linux or macOS needs to be supported in order to be attractive to a wide range of developers. Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 is ideally suited for these requirements.

The Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon Phi processors are both widely used in HPC applications today. While the capabilities of each are different, the compilers that are part of Intel Parallel Studio CE 2018 can generate optimum code for each of these systems. An ecosystem of hardware and software, developed in conjunction with each other can greatly increase the overall developer and customer experience. Applications run faster due to the instructions generated as well as parallel directive to take advantage of the multiple cores that exist in a single server today. Although generating fast code for a given application is critical, if the compiler does not work seamlessly with OpenMP, significant performance is left unused.

Compiler suites need to operate on a wide range of applications and support many different programming models and environments. With various editions, Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 addresses the requirements for a range of developers.

The Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 Composer Edition addresses the needs of those who need to build fast code, faster. Various compilers are included as well as highly tuned mathematical libraries.

The Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 Professional Edition builds on the Composer Edition and adds tools that help a developer analyze the performance and tune the application. Various tuning options are available that enable developers to create highly optimized HPC applications.

At the top of the options is the Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 Cluster Edition. Building on the Professional Edition, the Cluster Edition gives developers the additional tools that are needed to scale the application across multiple servers. Included with the Cluster Edition are MPI libraries that allows applications that are designed to scale the ability to do so. HPC applications, when written correctly may scale to thousands of cores and show tremendous performance improvements. When applications are being developed and debugged that run across a large number of servers, tools are needed that enable the developer to understand what is happening across a wide number of systems.

The new Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 gives developers all of the tools that are needed to create innovative applications that take advantage of the hardware.  Customers can reduce their Total Cost of Ownership by executing applications faster, whether on a single server or on an entire cluster.
